Proposed Leisure Centre & Library for Denton Park

Lyn Hucklebridge from Hornby Rugby Football Club

Do you know about the Proposed Leisure Unit and Library the Council would like to build? There has been consultation recently about this proposal but the Council did not revel all in the consultation.
On Saturday at a Community Board meeting they decided that Denton Park should be the preferred option even though the Submissions favored Kyle Park.
This will now go to full Council Meeting on 24th August.

As a member of Hornby Rugby Football Club we are very concerned and so are the Hornby Cricket Club members because we stand to lose some of our sporting grounds if this facility goes ahead.

They intend to run the building along the front of Denton Park the full width and parking will be at the back of Denton Oval. You will not be able to see any of Denton Park from the Main road. As a community we should be very worried about this proposal. The traffic congestion is bad enough now around the Hub and will be double if it goes ahead. There will be no parking in front of the building. They will require staff parking as well and also the users of the facility.
Please be aware of what the Council are pushing and sign the petition on the link below to help us preserve Denton Park as our beautiful green space that it is for the future of Hornby residents.

We are not against the Proposed Leisure Centre at all but just not at Denton Park. We prefer Kyle Park or Warren Park, so we are hoping you can help us out and fight the Council to decide against Denton Park. Kyle Park should be cleaned up so the Community can use it for recreation & a New Library and Council offices.

We thank you for your support and lets hope we can turn this decision around.

Is your broadband bill about to increase? Don't throw money away.

NZ Compare

Spark have recently announced a price increase of $3 - $5 a month for new and existing broadband customers and other providers seem likely to follow suit.

Information collated by our research team has found that tens of thousands of Kiwis are still missing out on hundreds of dollars of savings each year on their broadband bill, because they are failing to shop around for cheaper broadband plans.

We estimate that over 500,000 households would be able to pay less for their broadband each month but many consumers are unaware of the fact that they could be making these savings and people often don’t know where to start when looking for a change in broadband plan or provider.

This is where NZ Compare can help. Our websites are simple to use and if you need more help, our friendly, Auckland based, customer support centre can advise on the most suitable broadband plan for your needs and help talk you through the switch. With unlimited fibre broadband plans available for less than $60 a month why would you pay more?

Find out more at NZ Compare or call the team on 0508 226672

CORRECTION: This post has been amended to clarify that the price of fibre and copper broadband internet services will increase, and that the increase is between $3 and $5 a month, not only $5 a month on fibre broadband plans as previously posted. (Amended at 10.31am, June 23, 2022)
